Winter ‘Flu Vaccination Programme 2021
The way you will get your ‘flu vaccine this year has changed.
People aged 70 or over will now be sent a letter by the national booking system with details of an appointment at a vaccination centre.
From now on, GP practices will not administer the ‘flu jag. Across Scotland, Health and Social Care Partnerships are taking on this role in line with the GP Contract agreed by BMA Scotland on behalf of Scottish GPs. This change has been agreed to relieve pressure on GP practices. As a result your local practice will not offer any flu vaccinations or handle any booking queries for people in eligible groups.
Instead, the ‘flu vaccine will be delivered by the four Health and Social Care Partnerships in Lothian - East Lothian; Midlothian; Edinburgh and West Lothian.
If you require further information or you need to rearrange your appointment, please contact the helpline on your appointment invitation or the local enquiry line on 0300 790 6296. Please do not contact your GP. You can find out more on the websites of the Health and Social Care Partnerships or on NHS Inform.
If you would like to have a video consultation with a GP then please contact reception to make an appointment.
